Alumni are incredibly important in the admissions process. Our admissions counselors travel across the country and around the world, but we can’t be everywhere. We rely on alumni volunteers to represent Oberlin at college fairs and to interview many of our applicants.
Through the Alumni Recruitment Network, volunteers can shape the next generation of Oberlin College students by sharing your experiences with prospective students, whether it is through interviewing one day a year, attending a college fair, or going to an admitted student reception. This office helps coordinate those opportunities.
As alumni, you are experts and representatives of the college. You help to define what Oberlin is. Your stories bring Oberlin to life in ways that other methods cannot. We cannot emphasize how powerful and positive an impact you have on prospective students and their families.
